Hi everyone! I am very excited about this blog. I have been involved with the Americans With Disabilities Act as an attorney since 1990, and over the years, I have come to realize that this law is very esoteric, can be complex, and perhaps even daunting to the uninitiated. My writings have always focused on the practical so that individuals, businesses, and their attorneys can make use of the law in very practical ways. This blog is going to continue that approach. It will talk about Americans With Disabilities Act/§ 504 of the rehabilitation act matters and try to break them down into practical things so that the ADA can be managed effectively. My intent is to cover across the titles (employment, governmental access, and accessing business entities-titles I-III of the ADA). Of course, the blog is not meant to give out specific legal advice or even specific consulting services (that would have to be subject to a separate arrangement of course). Even so, we should be able to accomplish a great deal here by breaking down the ADA in practical ways. Finally, in addition to the compliance work that I do, I am also a professor, paralegal program coordinator, and ADA instructional coordinator (point person for ADA compliance) at South Suburban College. Therefore, it is important to note that what I write about here on this blog represents my own opinions and views and is not meant to be representative of South Suburban College.
One question that has come up is how do you subscribe to this blog. We now have the ability to subscribe to the blog. On the right-hand side, you will see various options for subscribing. Subscribing has the advantage of letting you know new things on the site without having to go to the site itself.
Hope everyone enjoys it!!
